STUNNING CHARACTER POSTERS FOR TARSEM'S 'EMERALD CITY' EPIC TV SERIES WITH ADRIA ARJONA, OLIVER JACKSON COHEN, JOELY RICHARDSON, VINCENT D'ONOFRIO

 TARSEM'S 'EMERALD CITY
EPIC TV SERIES POSTERS!
Now, people the drought has been long, but it is finally over with the most delicious of nectars: the first, utterly gorgeous and positively stunning character photos have been released today for NBC's upcoming new epic fantasy adventure EMERALD CITY coming from that insanely talented visual mastermind Tarsem Singh (THE CELL, THE FALL, IMMORTALS). The Wizard of Oz re imagining told in ten episodes sometime next mid season will have the cast lead by Adria Arjona, Oliver Jackson Cohen, Joely Richardson and Vincent D'Onofrio! I hear a sneak peak trailer should be aired at Comic Con this Saturday! I shall stick it here ASAP!

 SAY GOODBYE TO KANSAS
Emerald City is described as a modern and dark reimagining of the classic tale of Oz. Swept up into the eye of a tornado, 20 year old Dorothy Gale and her K9 police dog are transported to another world — a mystical land in great peril, where an all powerful Wizard has outlawed magic and rules over a mystical land of competing kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy! This is the fabled Land of Oz in a way you’ve never seen before — where lethal warriors roam, wicked witches plot in the shadows and a young girl from Kansasbecomes the headstrong hero who holds the fate of their world in her hands.

TARSEM'S STELLAR CAST
Created by Matthew Arnold, the series sees young Adria Arjona playing the grown up Dorothy  Gale, Oliver Jackson Cohen is Lucas, the Scarecrow and also her love interest, he is handsome, mysterious and quick witted. Dorothy finds him, beaten, bloodied, and moaning on a post outside the ruins of his village. The sole survivor of what appears to gave been a mass crucifixion, he remembers nothing of his past, not even his name. He joins Dorothy on her journey to the EMERALD CITY, and as they survive challenge after challenge, he proves his loyalty to the brave but bewildered newcomer.
Florence Kasumba is a rather dramatic new Wicked Witch of the East with a rather glitzy fashion taste. Gorgeous Joely Richardson is the Good Witch Glinda, while Vincent D'Onofrio is the big Wizard himself, the enigmatic leader of Emerald City. A man of science in a world of magic, he rules through inspiration, fear and a tenuous accord with the grand witches!
The Wicked Witch of the West is played by Ana Ularu, she is a force of nature who has entered an unholy alliance with the Wizard. Corrupt and languorously seductive, she is a creature of perverse humour and unsavoury appetites. She lives in a lavishly appointed brothel where she is the madam of sorts. When confronted with the news of the First Sign that foretells the coming of the Beast, she’s clearly deeply affected by the portent’s significance…and what it means for her.
Mido Hamada is brave warrior Eamonn, Stefanie Martini, whom we mentioned only yesterday, is lovely Lady Ev, while Jordan Loughran is Tip, and Gerran Howell is Jack, brave, adventurous and perpetually positive!

  1. I would never have recognized Vincent D'Onofrio in that hair and beard if you hadn't written it was him! I'm glad he's back in the acting scene again after his difficulties and hiatus of a few years ago.

    1. I'm a few episodes behind the US airing of Containment :) And since I watch an episode a week, I will get to the finale in a few weeks :) I do know that Kathy, or what is her name died.... I did not like her ever since she yelled at the cop while he was burning corpses in the basement....
